Join the #VMMCommUNITYclean up Challenge
VMM also invites you to clean up somewhere important to you during our #VMMcommUNITYcleanup challenge. This could be somewhere sacred to you, your culture or community—a park you visit regularly or played in as a child or the place you go to get away and think. If it’s important to you, VMM wants to see it! Post photos, videos or both to Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter, tag us and three other people and use the hashtag #VMMcommUNITY challenge, and we may feature you on Vision Maker Media’s nationwide social feeds!
